Bowling then cites a "bullshit quote" from a current CVG interview wherein Heller states that previous Call of Duty titles required several pictures with bolt motion rifles to make a kill and says that Treyarch has corrected this in World at War. Responded Bowling: "WTF are you talking approximately?! ... First of all, you did not work on 'preceding Call of Dutys', so don't communicate as if you're down with how / why matters had been designed the way they had been. Second, you're completely fucking incorrect."

Bowling concludes that World at War has many properly capabilities and that Activision could be better off promoting them in place of comparing the sport to previous titles. He notes that the media should interview a person from Treyarch that "knows what the fuck they are speaking about" and no longer "Senior Super Douche Noah Heller from Activision - who reputedly has in no way played the sport and doesn't even paintings on the developer." Yowch. Soap operas are not this precise.
